Do you love to make music? Want to advance your current skills, or learn how to play an instrument? Ever dreamed of singing on stage? Then you may want to consider a minor in music.

You can declare a minor in music to complement a major in any other area of study. The combination of a music minor with various majors may lead to graduate study and/or careers in such fields as the expressive therapies, arts administration, radio, television and theatre.

In addition to the requirements listed below, the faculty encourages music minors to elect an inter-area field experience that applies knowledge of music in a field placement appropriate to the student's major. Many students have found this pleasurable and beneficial for further career opportunities.
